This one-day interactive workshop will build on the ROSC transformation efforts led by Florida’s DCF that began in 2015. Everyone has a role to play in bringing a recovery orientation to Florida’s behavioral health system. Stakeholders across Florida care deeply about ensuring that people with behavioral health conditions receive high-quality, person-centered treatment and services. Expanding ROSC throughout the state builds on past successes, addresses current community needs, and advances stakeholders’ desire to ensure that everyone, regardless of health condition or life circumstance, has the opportunity to live a full, meaningful, and contributing life in the community of their choice. Stakeholders report that they are eager to proceed with developing a ROSC, but they are unclear about how to proceed and they need assistance with operationalizing the concepts. In other words, what do these principles look like in action? This workshop specifically designed for providers is intended as the first event in an ongoing process for provider and workforce development. “It’s not just a matter of kicking this off today, tomorrow or the next day; it is the sustainability of this work that is going to be most important.” John Bryant, Assistant Secretary, Substance Abuse and Mental Health, Florida Department of Children and Families
Who should attend?This workshop is designed for clinicians, clinical supervisors, program managers, prevention agencies, community coalitions and executives in substance abuse and mental health agencies, Managing Entities and DCF program staff.
